For libraries which load complete authority files into their Koha installations, authority records which are not in use can overwhelm those that are in the Browse subjects and authors in the OPAC. This patch adds an OPACShowUnusedAuthorities system preference that can be set to ‘off’ so that the display can be limited to only those authorities referenced in the bibliographic database.
